Dr. Phil Parshall, author of several books in Muslim ministry and himself a missionary to Asian Muslim countries for many years, donated his personal collection of 2,000 volumes of books on Islamic studies. This collection is called “The Florentino de Jesus Sr. Memorial Islamics Library” in honor of Rev. Florentino de Jesus, Sr. who devoted years of his life in reaching the Muslims for Christ.
The collection consists of the following:
- devotional books
- books on missiology
- Christian biography
- books on Islam by Islamic authors
- books on Islam by Christian authors
All who use the ATS library can use the Islamic studies collection. Those who are engaged in Muslim Ministry, or preparing for such ministry (non-ATS student) will be given a discount in acquiring an ATS library card, which is P250.00 for six months or P500.00 for a year. The library card gives the holder access to the rest of the ATS library. This privilege is extended to those who are certified by anyone from an ATS list of References. Books from the Islamics collection can be checked out for two weeks.
